Helpful content but some annoying issues
The content is really helpful, and the examples are clear. But you can't pause or skip back or ahead, and you can't see how long the episode is or how far in are. If you pause, the whole thing starts over. And you can't drag the slide to go back to where you left off. So that's extremely annoying. Also, way less of a thing, but the professor's voice is kind of like the tone you use when you're reading a kids' book, or explaining something to an idiot. I don't mind it that much because I'm kind of an idiot. But it might be annoying.
Needs to be fixed
Helpful information but needs to fixed. If you pause it restarts from the beginning. And you can’t see a time bar so don’t know where you are/were at in the podcast. And can’t drag a time bar to skip. The 30 second fast forward and 15 second rewind doesn’t work either and/or doesn’t work correctly and restarts. Also there are sometimes where it randomly restarts from the start.
Seems like it would be a really valuable resource if it did not have technical issues. Basically it skips and restarts, have yet to find an episode that works the whole way though. Fix it and I'll give you five stars and review love!
